The God of all creation is unimaginably powerful and resourceful.

He operates in superlative excellence and precision. The engineering behind the structure of the physical universe and the biological spheres beggars understanding. 

It is commonly said in academic halls that the phenomena in our universe arrived at its current state by happenstance but this is an obvious misunderstanding of the  nature of phenomena and the nature of happenstance.

The universe and all that is in it was made by God and therefore,  every mind-numbing and mind-blowing form and  feature of this universe are attributable to Him.  Any fair observation of the world around us would have to fill the observer with awe and fear of the author of all things.

The salient question is now this: What are we humans to do with the understanding that God exists and is in fact supremely powerful and awesome?

Being sentient entities, we should compare our sentience to the sentience of the creator.  We should try understand the universe and the workings of it structures. The scriptures say, "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to find it out". - Proverbs 25 verse 2

In doing our comparison between God and us, we should come to the realization that we have fallen short of the glory of God. We should realise that God is perfect and that we humans have morally lapsed and discover that this is in fact why we are separate from God. 

In other words, we become aware that the universe was made by a brilliant and perfect person but we are also perplexed because we have no direct contact with this person who seems to be hidden from us.

It is here where we discover that God is truly wonderful. We come to the realization that we are separate from God because we, as a race, have rebelled against Him and have tried to set ourselves on a course of self-rulership. 

A cursory look at the nature of the world that we have created for ourselves should inform us that we have not been successful in this enterprise and that without God, we are deteriorating rapidly into a hellish realm of rulership of brute force by some humans over others.

By the sacrifice of His only begotten Son, Jesus, God made a way for us to gain connection to Him again. He has paid the price to restore us out of our rebellion to Him and then has made a way for us to be joined to His family and then made us co-heirs with His Son Jesus Christ in the enterprise of reclaiming as many people as possible into a reconnection with God. 

This is our wonderful God. He wonderfully made us and then He wonderfully saved us and we will see Him with our own eyes and we will behold His wonder and glory.
